You can order products quickly in the Amazon Shopping app by using 1-Click.
If you want to disable this order feature in the mobile application, then you can check out this step-by-step tutorial at Overly Technical.
What is Amazon’s 1-Click
By activating 1-Click, you can expediate the order process as you don’t need to sign into your Amazon account, select your payment option or select your shipping address.
This feature is helpful if you are the only person using your account.
It is also quite beneficial when a popular product gets restocked. For instance, if a Nintendo Switch OLED, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 5 Digital Edition, Xbox Series S or Xbox Series X is available or order, you can quickly buy one with 1-Click while others have to go through the regular steps to ordering. By the time the other customers are ready confirmed their orders, these gaming systems may run out of stock due to the wasted seconds.
On the other hand, it is very easy to order products, especially digital videos and music, by mistake when using 1-Click. Instead of thinking you were adding a product in a cart, you may end up ordering it instead.
